EMAP (Edinburgh Mouse Atlas Project)EMAP (Edinburgh Mouse Atlas Project)

The UK MRC Human Genetics Unit in Edinburgh is developing a digital atlas of mouse development and database to be a resource for spatially mapped data such as in situ gene expression and cell lineage.


EMAGE Mouse Developmental Gene Expression DatabaseEMAGE (Mouse Developmental Gene Expression Database)

Established 2002, EMAGE is an MRC-funded project to develop an analysis system for in situ gene expression data in the mouse embryo.

GUDMAPGUDMAP (The GenitoUrinary Development Molecular Anatomy Project)

Is a consortium of laboratories working to provide the scientific and medical community with tools to facilitate research.


EuReGene (European Renal Genome Project)EuReGene (European Renal Genome Project)

Our goal is to discover genes responsible for renal development, disease, their proteins and their actions.


Eurexpress A Transcriptome Atlas Database for Mouse EmbryoEurexpress (A Transcriptome Atlas Database for Mouse Embryo)

Ascertaining when and where genes are expressed is of crucial importance in order to understand physiological role of given gene/protein and interactions between them.


OPT Optical Projection TomographyOPT (Optical Projection Tomography)

Is a new technique for three-dimensional (3D) imaging of small biological tissues.
